I’ve setup my MBLD to Raid1 so I have 2TB of space available. I don’t want to have to copy all my data to another drive to store it offsite so what I would like to do every couple of months is switchout one of the hard drives on the MBLD to store it off site in case of fire or flood. That way I always have a backup somewhere else.
So my questions are:
- Even though my drives are working fine can I switch off the MBLD and then swap out one of the HDD to store it off site?
- Can you point me to WD store to a hard drive I can purchase to replace the one I swap out? Is it this one (
3) When I have swapped the HDDs should I only reconnect the power and NOT the network cable while the new HDD is re-built?
4) Can I use any HDD to swap as long as it’s equivalent ore more in space. For example since it’s 2TB can I swap it with a 4TB HDD?
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
